Re-visiting Escher....................

There is just something about M. C. Escher. From the archives comes this postthat has some additional Escher's drawings and links to more information about him.  Here are some quotes attributed to the man:

“I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.”

"My work is a game, a very serious game."

“Are you really sure that a floor can't also be a ceiling?” 

“Originality is merely an illusion”

“Only those who attempt the absurd...will achieve the impossible. I think ...I think it's in my basement...Let me go upstairs and check.” 

“Order is repetition of units.   Chaos is multiplicity without rhythm.”

“What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.”
